The Long Term Care Market: Nursing Homes, Home Care, Hospice Care, and Assisted Living

LONDON, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

The Long Term Care Market: Nursing Homes, Home Care, Hospice Care, and Assisted Living

http://www.reportbuyer.com/business_government/care_social_services/long_term_care_market.html

The advancing age of the population makes long-term care an important consideration for health marketers. This report, The Long Term Care Market: Nursing Homes, Home Care, Hospice Care, and Assisted Living, covers the most important segments of the long term care industry, each of which provide medical care and/or assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs) on an ongoing basis:

Nursing care
Home care
Hospice care
Assisted living
For each of these critical markets, Kalorama provides a market size and forecast estimate.

Kalorama Information publishes its fifth edition of this detailed report on the long term care industry at a time of growth but also increasing concern, particularly about payments, for the long term care industry. The elderly must contribute a far greater amount towards care out of pocket than was once the case. The economy has challenged the business strategies of key players, while the recent healthcare legislation introduces changes that may affect revenues. Although a small segment of long term care users are younger individuals with various mental and physical disabilities, most persons using long term care services are senior citizens. This population will also drive industry growth over the forecast period. Therefore, this report will focus on the elderly as the primary customers of long term care services.

For each of the segments of long term care the report provides:

Market Size and Forecast
Number of Facilities/Providers and Growth Trends
Patient Statistics
Forms of Payment and Reimbursement Levels
Trends Affecting the Marketplace
Competitors and Competitive Analysis

Sales estimates for each market segment represent U.S. revenues and are expressed in current dollars. Estimates are provided for the historic 2005 to 2009 period and forecasts are provided through 2015. As part of the report's analysis of the state of the industry, the report covers the following issues and trends discussed in the report include:

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way.

In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
